The Juniper Network Engineer focusses in support for Juniper network architecture, involved in implementing and providing technical support for networking topologies such as LAN, WAN as well as client internet applications. Juniper Engineers deliver on-site support for all client network hardware services.
These engineers have a detailed understanding of network protocols such as TCP/IP and understand how it operates on Juniper’s proprietary MX, EX, QFX, SRX, and PTX hardware.
As the telecom industry continues to evolve so has SD-WAN topologies. Juniper Engineers support this emerging and increasingly popular network topology as it scales well to the cloud.
Education and Certifications
Candidates must possess a relevant degree in computer science, IT or a related discipline. Certifications such as the Juniper JNCIS, JNCIP, and JNCIA or Cisco CCNP, CCNA and CCDA will demonstrate a thorough technical knowledge to prospective employers.
